The greatest among you must be your servant. 12 Anyone who raises himself up will be humbled, and anyone who humbles himself will be raised upMatthew 23:11-12
What does humility mean? Or, what does it mean to be humble?
In our world today, humility is not seen as a trait for successful people or a quality to be admired.
Think about it.
Social media is mostly about self-promotion and even professional sites like LinkedIn are all about self-promotion and in some ways self-aggrandisement.
So in the light and mix of all this, how can we remain humble, especially if promoting oneself is a requirement for a job?
One way I’ve come to navigate this, is to take the perception of a teacher, or better still, knowledge sharer.
So the goal of promoting on social media anything is to understand what value it can add or bring to the life of another person.
By taking this perspective of someone who is simply sharing what they’ve learnt with others, we remove the pressure to be perfect or experts or self-conceited and instead our hearts are turned to how we can inspire others to become better and informed.
The truth is that humility requires real grace of the Holy Spirit working and correcting us and directing our paths.
And we in turn need to be completely docile and obedient to His gentle and quiet inspirations.
The more we do this, repenting when we falter, the more Power the Spirit of God gives us to become more and more conformed into the image of Christ.
Divine Spirit of the Living God, we need Your breath afresh in our lives today.
Please come again in Your own way and anoint me.
Your anointing will save my soul, o Holy Spirit of God and so I want Your full and perfect anointing in my life.
Transform me from my pride and foolishness and conform me into the perfect humble image of Christ Jesus.
Let me seek to serve others and bring glory to Your Name.
I thank You God for I know that I have asked, You have answered me in Jesus Name. Amen!
Always & Forever,
To the Lamb,
With all my ❤
